Hyundai is working on the all-new Creta, which will be launched in the Indian market next year. Hyundai is likely to showcase the all-new car at the 2020 Auto Expo before the official launch. The Indian version of the Hyundai Creta will be similar to the Hyundai ix25, which is the Chinese version of the car. Earlier, the all-new Creta was spotted without any camouflage in China and in South Korea. While we have a fair idea of what the car will look like from the outside, here are the first pictures of the cabin of the all-new Creta by AutoHome.
Since this will be a complete model change, Hyundai has completely changed the vehicle’s cabin. The Creta has always offered a premium interior with the Creta but the all-new Creta will offer an even more upmarket feel. The pictures show that the dashboard of the all-new Creta looks like any other luxury car now. It gets a huge floating-type touchscreen infotainment system that takes the centre of the dashboard. The screen seamlessly merges into the console of the dashboard. Even though the pictures of the cabin are blurry, it seems like the all-new Creta will get an all-digital instrument cluster. It will be a first in the segment if Hyundai launches the feature in the Indian market. Also, the new Tesla-like central touchscreen is likely to become the control centre for the car, which will reduce the number of buttons on the dashboard.
Further, the car’s exterior has been spotted in the pictures too. It all-new Creta will be based on an all-new platform that also underpins the Kia Seltos. The car gets an all-LED headlamp system, 17-inch alloy wheels, split rear tail lamps and 360-degree surround-view camera. Luxury features like a panoramic sunroof are likely to be present in the car. The all-new Creta will also become bigger in size than the current model. It will translate into bigger cabin space.
Hyundai will make use of the engines that power the Kia Seltos in the next-generation Creta. To start with, there will be a similar engine line-up in the next-generation Creta. It will include the 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. Also, we might see the more powerful version of the 1.0-litre turbocharged engine that is available with the Hyundai Venue in the next-generation Hyundai Creta.
The all-new Hyundai Creta will also get a 7-seater version, which will be launched in 2021. Hyundai is likely to use the 1.4-litre turbocharged engine to power the bigger version of the Creta. However, it cannot be confirmed at this stage. The all-new model will be officially launched in the Chinese market next month.
